This review is from: The Colossal Book of Mathematics (Hardcover)
Exactly what you would expect - a wonderful collection from Martin Gardner!
(As ever, the Bibliographies are very, very helpful.)
I already have about ten of Martin's books - but this one will be my favourite for sure!
A great present for the mathematically inclined!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent., 9 Jan 2014

This review is from: The Colossal Book of Mathematics (Hardcover)
A great fat book which I gave to two people this Christmas. It is more than a book of puzzles. It explores the concepts behind the puzzles which makes it a more benign read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Aptly named!, 23 Oct 2010

This review is from: The Colossal Book of Mathematics (Hardcover)
Anyone who has found themself panicking at the very mention of the term 'Mathematics' should seriously consider buying this great collection of number treats.

Now in his nineties, Gardner started writing articles for Scientific American in the 50's to remove the fear factor from the subject and make it more accessible to a wider public. He was tremendously succesful and is held in great esteem by experts and lay people alike. This 'colossal' collection of some of his articles for the magazine is a great starting point to appreciate his fascinating communicative skills and overcome any lingering fear of maths.

Worth every penny!
